Welcome to Texas and District Kindergarten.

We are a single unit operating 2 days a week on Mondays and Wednesday. We offer quality education and care for 3 year olds to pre prep students. Our program begins at 8.00am and finishes at 3.30pm. We follow the QLD State School holidays and pupil free days.

Free Kindy for 2022 - Enrol Now

Texas and District Kindergarten has secured additional funding from the Queensland Department of Education to offer Free Kindy for 2022. The funding allows families of eligible-aged children to attend Texas and District Kindergarten for 15 hours per week at no cost.  Your child must turn four-years-old by 30 June 2022 to be eligible for the funding.  Please contact us for more information or to enrol and secure your child’s place today.

Please contact the service on 07 46531247 or email us at kidsone@bigpond.com. Places may still be available for this year.

Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children in the year before they attend school. When places are available, 3-year old children may be able to attend.

C&K's kindergarten programs are guided by university-qualified teachers and support children to be curious, capable, and collaborative learners.

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, for us learning is partnership between teachers, children, parents, and communities. 

Our curriculum approach, Listening and Learning Together, aligns with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

It continues the longstanding traditions and philosophical commitments of C&K to our children, families and communities. Read more about the history of C&K.

We've designed our indoor and outdoor spaces to ignite imaginations, nurture healthy minds and bodies, as children explore, experiment, play and learn.

Learning through play is an integral part of our education program. Our educators skilfully enrich and extend on children's play experiences, creating a learning program that is tailored and meaningful for your child.

Your child's learning journey is shared with you via conversations with your child's educators and through written documentation in your centre, and in some centres through StoryPark (an app and website).
